The Emancipation Continuum

August 5, 2021

Over the past few years a lot of my writing and presentations have referred to a thing I’ve been calling the emancipation continuum. This is an analytical framework that I developed from ideas that I originally found in an article by Christopher Worthman, and which became central to the thesis I developed in my doctoral dissertation.

Since then, I have written a separate article that presents the emancipation continuum as an analytical framework, i.e. a means of analysing English language courses/programmes for their emancipatory potential, i.e. the extent to which they develop capacities for students to actively engage with and participate in the positive transformation of society. This article was recently published in the British Journal of Sociology of Education, and is now available in open-access. I decided to post a link to the article here to make it easier to access, and also to create a forum for anyone to post comments or ask questions, if they wish to do so.
